Somatic Fascia Restructuring’s Fundamentals of Neigong

In our next cycle of Somatic Fascia Restructuring we will explore Neigong. Traditional Neigong offers a complex and robust somatic system that targets the fascial body. It is characterized by natural breathing, relaxed frame of mind, smooth circular movements,  supple whole-body spiraling and coiling movements. This internal art embodies both yin and yang energies expressed through its different applications. All together, this course concentrates on developing the practitioner’s alignments and balance thus Restructuring one’s fascia body.

Fascia & Bio-Tensegrity

Fascia is a form of connective tissue that supports the body and facilities movement. It binds the body together in different layers, and then organizes it into a whole, maintaining a consistent form for the structures within the body. It is a very tough and fibrous tissue which surrounds and interpenetrates every muscle, bone, nerve, blood vessel, as well as all of our internal organs including the heart, lungs, brain and spinal cord. The most interesting aspect of the fascial system is that it is not just a series of separate coverings, but rather one continuous structure that exists from head to toe without interruption. In this way you can begin to see that each part of the entire body is connected to every other part via the fascia.

Bio-Tensegrity is the dynamic aspect of fascia that creates a web of support for structure and movement. It’s the principal of bio-tensegrity that facilitates your body’s ability to move, as well as the ability of your organs to function properly. The fibers of this web line up based on lines of force in the body, meaning that dysfunction and trauma can cause the fibers to become disorganized, which prevents optimal movement and function within any area of your body.

Course Curriculum

The course covers the fundamentals of Neigong presented though a Somatic lens. Somatics are compliment to traditional Neigong (内功, internal) movement principles. We will use traditional styles of Qigong & Tai Chi Chuan as vehicles to explore somatic movement. The internal principals of Neigong are used to develop coordination of all the parts of the body to achieve whole-body movement: when one part moves, all parts move. As the mind becomes internalized the body becomes holistic. Although the ancient masters did not use the term ‘fascia’ we now know that the meridians they were referring to and developing were, at least impart  the fascia body.
